Capcom Cup 2017 winner crowned

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

It was one hell of a tournament.

MenaRD has been crowned the winner of the Capcom Cup 2017.

Saul ‘MenaRD’ Mena earned his crown by defeating EVO champion and tournament favourite in a lengthy Grand Final.

MenaRD’s victory was a huge upset, with the Dominican Republic player defeating both SF legend Daigo, and third place finisher Nemo on the way to Grand Finals.

Even more impressive, Mena won the tournament playing Birdie, a heavy character widely considered to be at a significant disadvantage to Akuma, Tokido’s main.

Tokido and Mena faced each other in the Winners Finals, with Tokido winning out in a tense, five game battle. Mena wasn’t to be stopped however, fighting back through the losers final against Nemo for a rematch. Mena had to beat Tokido in two straight sets to beat Tokido who was coming in from the winner’s side of the bracket.

The final certainly didn’t disappoint with the first set going to a full five games again before Mena stole victory 3-1 in the second set. Check out the full match below:
